A one-time passcode (OTP) is a security code that provides an additional layer of protection that safeguards sensitive information and certain online banking activities. It’s a numeric security code (up to 7 digits) that you will receive via text message to your cellphone or to your email address when you perform certain activities. The code is time sensitive and valid only for a limited amount of time.

Here are some examples of when one-time passcodes are used:

• Register for online banking
• First time you sign in to online banking
• Add a new bill payee
• Update contact information
• Change or reset your password
• Transfer funds to other Unity Credit Union members
• Add an Interac e-Transfer® recipient
If you were expecting to receive your passcode by email, first check your spam or junk mail folder. If you don't find it there, click 'resend the code' on your confirmation screen to send it again. Sometimes the passcodes experience a slight delay when sent by email.
If you have a cellphone number on file with us, the one-time passcode will automatically send the code to your cellphone number. If you choose to have the code sent to your email address, you will receive a second code. The second code sent is the one that you should use.
Push notifications are messages that can be sent directly to a user’s cellphone. They can appear on a lock screen or in the top section of a mobile device.
Choose a unique username that you'll remember easily as once it's created, it cannot be changed! Avoid using just your first name as it may be too simple and already in use by someone else.

  • Minimum 5 - Maximum 35 alphanumeric characters (A to Z, a to z, 0 to 9)
  • Special Characters that can be used are:
  • _ (underscore)
  • . (period)
  • @ (alias)

*Username CANNOT be your debit card number*

If you try something that isn't accepted, it likely means someone else has already chosen that username.
Password must be a minimum of 10, maximum 35 characters and include:

  • Minimum 1 uppercase letter
  • Minimum 1 lowercase letter
  • Minimum 1 number
Special characters are optional.
Yes! Two people can use the same email address or cellphone number. Be aware that when one person is using online banking and receives a one-time passcode (OTP), both parties will receive that OTP.
In order to access online banking, an email address or cellphone number is required to receive one-time passcodes (OTPs) for security purposes. Several providers offer a free email account.
The answer is no.  Once you've created a username, you won't be able to change it.
Yes! On the sign in screen click ‘Forgot username or password’ and choose ‘Recover Username’. You will then be guided through some simple steps to recover your username. If you run into any problems, please contact us at 306.228.2688, and someone will be more than happy to assist you.
The good news is NO!  Now you will always sign in using your username.
Our secure messaging service allows you to communicate with us from within the online banking system and is only available after you have signed in.
